There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our cloud website hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to redirect any of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the practical redirection tool we have incorporated with our custom Hepsia website hosting CP. It shall permit you to forward the website visitors within seconds, due to the fact that all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and type in the web address of the other Internet site. The redirection shall take effect very quickly. If you are more advanced, you'll be able to modify different options, including the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be changed for any already present redirection as well, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you wish to modify something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
